Jack Tretton is better than Shawn Layden

Clearly Phill won the show. He showed games, no 3D, online bullshit talk. Only games, games and games. He even twitter people. He is good guy.

Tretton was the man. I think his replacement left a trail of slime on the stage floor.

Phil's neat. They seriously need someone likeable and he is that person.

Reggie and Iwata are the answers.

You realise these people are only part of a team right?

Looks to me like the team is just fine. It can't all be about the games, you have to have some filler. Microsoft filled their presentation up with multiplats for the most part, and a big mistake was to not talk about what they were doing with their online service people pay $60 for.

Phil was great. This Shawn guy? That guy needs to go somewhere. He was trying his hardest to hype F2P on a $400 console. A sign Sony is broke. He emphasizes "free" a few times and the first vid shows you have to pay for some of the content shown. WTF?

I don't think he had much choice considering Andrew House and others took roles to pretty much took reigns to announce games, he seems ok Phil Spencer is great for Xbox, and really you still on the whole "sony is broke" tyrade? It's old now get over it, Playstation is not going anywhere, and do some research before making some asinine comments you have no clue in which your talking about.

It's Now or Never

Hirai vows to complete overhaul of electronics business this financial year.

Sony's top executive vowed to finish reforming its troubled electronics business by next April, saying the company has no choice if it wants to return to growth.

"If we cannot execute all the things we need to get done this fiscal year and generate real results, it will be all but impossible to envision a growth strategy for the mid- to long term," CEO Kazuo Hirai said at a corporate strategy meeting on Thursday.

Just because someone isn't a strong presenter does not mean they are bad with business. Only in videogames does a CEO have to sing and dance in front of a camera for international audiences. This thread is bad and you should feel bad for making it.

Phil Spencer is not the best presenter I've seen but he is genuine. This Shawn guy is a suit, in fact Sony's presser was full of suits. Looks like Xbox got all the good guys from Sony in Phil Harrison and Jeff Rubenstein. I like Jack Tretton, good he jumped and hope he goes to a company that is actually going places.

Now if only ANYONE at an MS press event could get the kind of standing O that Shuhei Yoshida got last night... Your post deserves this. Just own it and never do it again.

Phil generally felt more like a Gamer, or atleast someone WHO cared about the product he is selling.

Granted they are both after the same thing, and none of hem cares about you in the slightest as soon as you dropped your Cash. But Phil is the better front figure due to ease of identifying with.

Just pretend that I wrote "Phill" everytime I wrote his name, can not be arsed to go back and check.
